Travelling as a family group including 2 small children on a Eurostar weekend break, this seemed like a good place for a basic overnight stay. Bought along with Eurostar tickets, it was certainly very cheap. We were just looking for somewhere with basic facilities for simple self-catering, that would sleep 2 adults and 2 little boys.
The staff were pretty surly. We arrived just after noon to drop our bags to discover that reception was closed for a 3 hour lunchbreak between 1200 and 1500 (not mentioned when booking). Extra charges (6 euro total) were requested for storing bags - I've never been asked to pay for that before.
I would concur with other reviewers that the thin-mattressed beds were not comfortable and the shower did not function well. On a muggy midsummer night we had to choose between darkness or ventilation + road noise, since the curtains only covered the non-opening glass part of the window. The kitchen was patchily equipped (nothing to drink out of other than a wine goblet or a cereal bowl). I've never stayed anywhere before where you have to take your own rubbish down to the basement garage...
However, the area wasn't that bad, and it was maybe a 15 minute walk to the stations and 5 mins to metro at Grand Palais. We enjoyed watching Phineas and Ferb in German on the TV. On future trips would seek out different accommodation though.
